Bought a house in Tally today

OH Yeah...decided to buy a place here in Tally. Actually a little east of Tally, but we keep the Tallahassee mailing address. Seller signed the contract today. It Firetrucks my vacation though...The closing date is June 1st!!! It is 1600 ft2 sitting on a fenced acre in the woods. It is on a circle at the end of the road so there will be no people "just passing by" I may have to hit the Gap the weekend before and be back here Tuesday...if I can pull it off at all...we will keep the house in Illinois as I am back there monthly...I'll try to get some decent pics this week and post them...

Very cool, congrats. All you need is to buy my Vette, it'd look great sitting in the driveway.

Awesome Bee but how come you didn't buy something up here in Michigan?

So you are going to be able to make it to the GAP when WOS is there?

Be careful...there are witnesses...you might be hauling boxes soon!!


ShanMan14.... Very cool, congrats. All you need is to buy my Vette, it'd look great sitting in the driveway.


After buying this house, I can barely afford grits and cereal...let alone your vette...

I am going to try something at the beginning or end of your visit...unless I can get the closing moved up...there is the confab today "with all interested parties" and that will get worked out


Sorry, but Michigan did not make the short list, maybe when I win the lottery and take up competitive snow shoveling and need a place to practice 6 months of the year...

Congrats on the new house bee.. Sounds nice.. But vacation? I didn't think you fIRETRuckers in Florida took vacation? Most people go to Florida for vacation and you are already there.. I am much confused.. Maybe the Twisty Decoder has something on this..

Actually, the new status symbol for Floridians is to go sking in the winter. Most of those yuppie clowns I work with are running around with ski racks on their BMW's and Tahoes

What a joke! When you're in the snow the joke is to have a surf board rack on top of your BMW...I guess its only fitting to switch it the other way! LMAO
